Adelaide Closure

Temporary 2.5 Mile Closure for Pipe Replacement

By Bryan Perry |

A 2.5-mile segment of the Great Allegheny Passage will be closed for a major underground pipeline replacement, beginning July 8. The segment is between mile markers 92 and 94.5. A free shuttle service for travelers and their bicycles will be provided every 30 minutes, first-come, first-served, by Trail Connect between 7:30 am and 7:00 pm, seven days a week, between the hamlet of Adelaide (near Blue Canoe RV Resort) and the parking lot near Dickerson Run, which is across the river from Dawson. For details on how you and your traveling partners can use this shuttle, visit or call 724-972-6135.

The closure is required because Texas Eastern Transmission, operator of a 8,580-mile network of 30″ pipes sending natural gas from the Gulf of Mexico through 11 states to New York City and eastern ports, will be replacing a section of its pipe infrastructure underneath the Youghiogheny River. Texas Eastern Transmission selected Trail Connect to provide this service.

An exact end date will be determined by the speed of the project and will be posted at
